Another “Galaxy S III leak” hit the blogosphere this morning. A picture. An entirely fake, completely unconfirmed, and obviously tampered with photo.
Just like the rest of them.
Truth of the matter is, we haven’t seen anything legit on the Galaxy S III yet, at least in terms of imagery. I trust that the specs we saw leak out during Mobile World Congress are solid, if not spot on.
But far and away, the leaked images are the worst. There’s only one that even comes close to looking legitimate, and even that seems forged. Let’s have a look, yes?
First we saw a render (above) that “leaked” alongside seemingly legit specs. This image actually seems like a great mock-up of what the Galaxy S III will look like. It keeps the same design language that we’ve seen on Galaxy S devices, though I’m nearly positive that it didn’t come out of Samsung.
For one, any one of the people who work at TechCrunch could have mocked up this render. In fact, I look at all renders with a hefty helping of salt granules, since it’s normally very difficult — and sometimes impossible — to confirm that this or that render came straight out of Samsung HQ.
Then we saw the first image that could possibly be real, but there were still plenty of questions. Why is there a giant speaker grill at the bottom? And why is there a home button? The first few leaks, which were definitely renders but leaks all the same, showed no home buttons.
We also have to consider the fact that this image doesn’t match up to the previous render at all, nor does it match up with any of the leaked imagery that has come along after it. That’s not a good sign.
Speaking of the following leaks, a few days after the white “press shot” entered into the public realm, this thing popped up. The aspect ratio looks different, though the speaker grill is still there. However, there are capacitive buttons down below which doesn’t match up with the images we’ve seen displaying a home button and no button at all.
Oh, and this third image also has a 4
